Downtown Roseburg hosts the Neewollah Parade each Halloween in the center of downtown.

This year, Neewollah is re-imagined as a community-wide virtual costume parade and house decorating photo contest.

Halloween may be different through the pandemic but with the help of our community and partners we can arrive at a fun and safe experience!” -Jessica Bogardus, Executive Director, Downtown Roseburg Association.
